A Truro MP wades into the row over staff parking charges at Treliske.

Pirate FM told you some yearly permits are going up to £330.

Hospital bosses say they have to prioritise money for patient services.

But Sarah Newton warns a rise is not the right way.

Now she is demanding a U-turn.

Stuart Roden from Unison agrees, he said: "The unions had said they would be prepared to talk to the management, we know that financially the trust is very stretched at the moment, but it is impacted worst on the lower paid and part time workers and that just can't be right.

"They have got absolutely no alternative, they can't get the park and ride because that doesn't start early enough in the morning, they can't park offsite because there are no other car parks, so they're basically being held hostage for the privilege of going to work."
